Villa Biscossi Heronry

The Villa Biscossi heronry extends for 72 hectares in a very luxuriant humid grove. The black alder is the dominant essence, as well as elderberries and dogwoods. Gray herons are the first to occupy part of the heronry at the end of January; followed by night herons, little egrets and, in the second half of April, red herons and squacco herons.

Heronry of Cascina Notizia
The heronry of Cascina Notizia, near Goido (hamlet of Mede), is a hygrophilous grove of 75 hectares often interrupted by large clearings, dominated by herbaceous species living in a humid environment. Here as well we find an ornithofauna typical of the lowland areas, including the little grebe, the coot and the little bittern.
